Chicago: Time, Inc, 1953. This magazine is offered for the rare original drawings by W. W. Denslow for The Wonderful Wizard of Oz which apparently have been reproduced using the original chromotypographic methods. The color of these is therefore vibrant and unfaded. There are fifteen 4 1/4 x 5 3/4 plates, and various duo-tone and some B&W illustrations. The color plates themselves are in very good condition, the margins of some pages have a few minor flaws [wrinkles, a little soiling]. The story is a condensed version of the original published in 1900. The remainder of the magazine is in fair to poor condition. The color plates would make stunning framed art for a child's room. Media Mail and US Priority shipping include free tracking information.. Soft Cover. Fair to Poor. Illus. by Various Artists. Folio - over 12" - 15" tall., Time, Inc, 1953, Harrisburg: Stackploe Books, 1964. Fourth edition. Hardcover. Good/good. Shelf wear to tips, corners and edges of the book and jacket which is chipped at spine tips, top edge dusty, offsetting to the endpapers else clean and unmarked. First printing of the fourth edition. First published in 1961 it is updated here for the growing American involvement in Vietnam. Street Without Joy or La Rue Sans Joie was the name given by troops of the French Far East Expeditionary Corps to the stretch of Route 1 from Hu? to Qu?ng Tr? during the First Indochina War. Colin Powell had this to say of the book. "I recently reread Bernard Fall's book on Vietnam, Street Without Joy. Fall makes painfully clear that we had almost no understanding of what we had gotten ourselves into. I cannot help thinking that if President Kennedy or President Johnson had spent a quiet weekend at Camp David reading that perceptive book, they would have returned to the White House Monday morning and immediately started to figure out a way to extricate ourselves from the quicksand of Vietnam." Bernard Fall was killed by a mine while on patrol with the U.S. Marines in Operation Chinook II. From Wikipedia: "Bernard B. Fall (November 19, 1926 – February 21, 1967) was a prominent war correspondent, historian, political scientist, and expert on Indochina during the 1950s and 1960s. Born in Austria, he moved with his family to France as a child after Germany's annexation, where he started fighting for the French Resistance at the age of sixteen, and later the French Army during World War II....Fall traveled to Vietnam in 1953, when the First Indochina War was being waged between the Viet Minh and French Union forces. Due to his French citizenship, Fall was allowed to accompany French soldiers and pilots into enemy territory. From his observations, Fall predicted the French would fail in Vietnam. When the French were defeated in the critical Battle of Dien Bien Phu, Fall claimed the United States was partly responsible for France's loss. Fall believed that the United States had not supported France to a sufficient extent during the First Indochina War....Fall was a political scientist, but one who had been a soldier and who spoke the soldier's language and lived the soldier's life at the front line. He obtained his data on the war while slogging through the mud of Vietnam with French colonial troops, with American infantry, and with South Vietnamese soldiers. He combined the usual academic analysis of Indochina with a perspective of the war from the soldier's point of view.

From the Internet Movie Database: "Underground celebrity Ultra Violet was born Isabelle Collin Dufresne in 1935 in France, a convent-raised French bourgeois heiress. A coiffured society deb in those days, she moved to New York in 1953 where she spent a decade surrounding herself with artists like John Graham, John Chamberlain, and Salvador Dalí, the last with whom triggered her career as a painter. It was through her relationship with Dali that she eventually met pop icon Andy Warhol in the early 1960's and changed her name to Ultra Violet, evolving into one of Warhol's more accessible and unforgettable trashy-chic East 47th Street "Factory" superstars. An exotic vamp in style and attitude, Ultra Violet seemed to pick up quite a bit of makeup tips from silent star Theda Bara and went on to appear in Warhol's The Life of Juanita Castro (1965) and I, a Man (1967) before her cameo inclusions in other now-cult films. Her best-selling 1988 autobiography "Famous for Fifteen Minutes: My Years with Andy Warhol" detailed her rise in celebrity, and her play "You Are What You Eat" was performed in Czechoslovakia in 1992. As a visual artist with political and spiritual overtones, her mixed-media works have been displayed worldwide. " ; 274 pages ., Harcourt Brace Jovanovich, 1988, Frontier Press, 1953. Book.

"Dean Acheson was one of the most influential Secretaries of State in U.S. history, presiding over American foreign policy during the pivotal decade after World War II. During his vastly influential career, Acheson spearheaded the greatest foreign policy achievements in modern times, ranging from the Marshall Plan to the establishment of NATO. In a book filled with insight based on research in government archives, memoirs, letters, and diaries, historian Beisner illuminates Acheson's policy-making, describing how he led the State Department and managed his relationship with Truman. The book examines Acheson's major triumphs, including the highly underrated achievement of converting West Germany and Japan from mortal enemies to prized allies, and does not shy away from examining his missteps. But underlying all his actions, Beisner shows, was a tough-minded determination to outmatch the strength of the Soviet bloc--indeed, to defeat the Soviet Union at every turn." -- DJ flap. || Contents: Acknolwedgments --; Definitions of acronyms and abbreviations --; 1.; Introduction : "The shiniest fish that ever came out of the sea" --; pt. 1 --; 2.; Rare meat : adding reach to power --; 3.; Patterns of peril : joining the cold warriors --; 4.; Rome and Carthage : the Truman Doctrine --; 5.; The Marshall Plan and return to private life --; pt. 2 --; 6.; The inner and outer Acheson --; 7.; Acheson, the president and the State Department --; 8.; Keeping the Americans in, the Russians out, and the Germans down, 1949 --; 9.; Strategy in Europe : backing the West, probing the East --; 10.; Looking for chances in China, 1949 --; 11.; Neither wood nor ivory : checkmated in China, 1949-1950 --; 12.; Other early encounters with Asia and the Middle East --; pt. 3 --; 13.; Weapons : the H-bomb --; 14.; Words : NSC-68, public opinion, and total diplomacy --; 15.; Real diplomacy, in Europe, 1949-1950 --; 16.; Plunge into the unknown : the United States, Indochina, and China on the eve of the Korean War --; 17.; Friends in place : Acheson and Alger Hiss --; 18.; Evil days.; pt. 4 --; 19.; Testing ground -- Korea --; 20.; In the cockpit --; 21.; Prodding evolution with action : German rearmament --; 22.; Acceleration from a running start --; pt. 5 --; 23.; In thrall : ironic failures in Korea --; 24.; Job's comforter and the Mad Satrap --; 25.; Captives of war --; 26.; At different ends of the triangle : domestic debates, European armies, British allies --; pt. 6 --; 27.; Command in Japan --; 28.; Failure in Indochina and China --; 29.; Razor edge sensibilities : ANZUS and India --; 30.; Falling between two stools : the Middle East, North Africa, and Africa --; 31.; Picking up sticks in Egypt and Iran --; 32.; Jousting with Mosadeq, waiting for Nasser --; 33.; Latin America : critical but not serious --; pt. 7 --; 34.; Lisbon to letdown : the fate of the EDC --; 35.; Apples of discord : Germany and the Soviet Union, 1952 --; 36.; Scope for the exercise of every vital power --; 37.; Conclusion : Power for a purpose --; A note to the reader --; Notes --; Index. || Statesmen -- United States -- Biography.

ID: 415225

Dean Acheson was one of the most influential Secretaries of State in U.S. history, presiding over American foreign policy during a pivotal era--the decade after World War II when the American Century slipped into high gear. During his vastly influential career, Acheson spearheaded the greatest foreign policy achievements in modern times, ranging from the Marshall Plan to the establishment of NATO. Now, in this monumental biography, Robert L. Beisner paints an indelible portrait of one of the key figures of the last half-century. In a book filled with insight based on research in government archives, memoirs, letters, and diaries, Beisner illuminates Acheson's policy-making, describing how he led the state department and managed his relationship with Truman, all to illuminate the vital policies he initiated in his years at State. The book examines Acheson's major triumphs, including the highly underrated achievement of converting West Germany and Japan from mortal enemies to prized allies, and does not shy away from examining his missteps. But underlying all his actions, Beisner shows, was a tough-minded determination to outmatch the strength of the Soviet bloc--indeed, to defeat the Soviet Union at every turn. The emotional center of the book focuses on Acheson's friendship with Truman. No pair seemed so poorly matched--one, a bourbon-drinking mid-Westerner with a homespun disposition, the other, a mustachioed Connecticut dandy who preferred perfect martinis--yet no such team ever worked better together. Acheson's unstinting dedication to an often unpopular president was reciprocated with deep gratitude and loyalty. Together, they redrew the map of the post-war world. Over six foot tall, with steel blue, "merry, searching eyes" and a "wolfish" grin, Dean Acheson was an unforgettable character--intellectually brilliant, always debonair, and tough as tempered steel. This lustrous portrait of an immensely accomplished and colorful life is the epitome of the biographer's art. History History eBook, Oxford University Press, USA
